← Response to My Fellow 'Atheists'

As articulate and clear as Harris usually is with his words, and as he is in this particular speech, I'm amazed that it has so easily been misunderstood. He is arguing against using the term Atheist as some extra leg on which an argument could stand. He is arguing against using our non-belief as some kind of political trump card the way religious organizations use their belief trump card to say whatever it is that pops into their mind and to justify all their arguments. Good reasons and rationality should always be top priority.
